Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
At last -- I've found this thread and can place my bet.  I have no idea what I'm doing, but Jérôme has promised me chocolate shoes if I win.


I'll be happy to switch the prize to this if you participate and win, of course!

To which I accepted:

Okay, I'm printing this out as evidence!  My guess is, ummm, $87.03.  That's not even a S.W.A.G., it's a plain ol' W.A.G.  Do I need to register somewhere?  Are there forms to fill out?  Do we need a notary?
Wait, maybe I should see what Meteor says and make mine a penny more -- can I do that?  Is it too late??  ARGH!  I want those chocolate shoes!  Will they even make them next Christmas?  They're in the Unbossed colors and everything.  Maybe you should go to that store and ask them...

The confirmation (as well as a picture of the confection) can be found here.  So I guess it's official now and I have placed my fate on $87.03.

Maybe we can eventually make language a complete impediment to understanding. -Hobbes
